Well what a night. The weather was perfect and their was tremendous excitement in the air. The concert was to start at 8.45pm and as the lawn ticket seats are not allocated people were already taking their seats by 6.15pm all wanting to get the best possible seat for the concert. The time passed very quickly as there was a lot going on and the people watching was just great, interesting how they chose their seats. Then it was time and we could see Bryn approaching along the river path. The audience gave him a very warm welcome and we were off. Nothing could have prepared us for what we were about to hear. Just when you think it cannot get any better there he is proving your expectations wrong and singing even better than ever. He was on excellent form He started with Faust then Carmen leading us to Tosca and the Te Deum, well if I thought it was awesome and powerful at Covent Garden , my thoughts were completely blown away as this was the best I had ever heard , the orchestra were fantastic as were the Serendipity Singers. Now I am left to enjoy the rest of the concert reduced to jelly as I listened to Rodgers and Hammerstein, Danny Boy, Shenandoah and finally Gershwin. I only wish that the concert had been recorded so that all Bryn's fans could have the pleasure that we had all experienced by being at the concert.

Marilyn.

Vera - you and I are the big sinners of this outfit. I'm jealous, too.
